So far, Eonian Records has released 4 albums.

I just got them in the mail a couple days ago and haven't stopped crankin' them since!

Now, out of the 4 (or out of the ones you've heard), rank your favorite, from 1-4.

 

First off, I just want to say that I've really enjoyed all 4 releases... but if I had to "rank" them, this is what my list would look like;

 

1. Charlemagne - "Charlemagne"

2. High Noon - "No Turning Back" & Pistol Dawn - "Conversation Piece" ....can't decide between these two, so I'm gonna make it a tie!

3. Gynger Lynn - "Gynger Lynn"

 

Like I said, I really do like all 4 of them though! And I'm looking forward to more to come...

If you haven't heard these bands, I highly suggest that you check them out!

I just received all 4 Eonian Records releases, but have only had a chance to listen to two of them, Charlemagne and Pistol Dawn. Between those two, Pistol Dawn is my runaway favorite, thanks to their infectious, sleaze-tinged, hook-driven pop-metal sound. I also think the drums on Pistol Dawn sound really good, big, thick, meaty.

 

Don't consider any of this a diss on Charlemagne, however, as that's a perfectly solid melodic hard rock/metal album as well, just with a smoother, more polished style. I just prefer the dirtier attitude of Pistol Dawn. Personal preference an' all that.

Charlemagne - "Charlemagne" is the standout from the samples so far...

 

 

 

now someone should give it to me :)

Yeah, from what I've heard Charlemagne is easily the best - it's actually really excellent. High Noon is pretty damn cool as well, but from what I've heard of Gynger Lynn I think they'd be my second fave. They remind me of that glam band, Maximum. I llike it. Haven't heard Pistol Damn at all yet...

So far Gynger Lynn is my least favorite but lot of that has to do with the recording quality.

OK, so now I've given all 4 Eonian Records releases a good spin or two. Here's how I rank 'em:

 

Pistol Dawn

High Noon

Charlemagne

Gynger Lynn

 

There's some quality stuff here, folks, no doubt about it. Lookin' forward to future releases. Kudos to Steve on getting his label off to a great start!

After a few spins this is how I feel:

 

1A - High Noon - No Turning Back(Good 80's style Hard Rock)

1B - Charlemagne - s/t(Good Hard Rock that borders on AOR with great production, guitar playing and vocals)

Those two are just so close but so different but both are great IMO.

3 - Pistol Dawn - Conversation Piece(Sleazy at times and with a strange guitar sound but very good)

4 - Gynger Lynn - s/t(This one is growing on me and is good standard Hair Metal but the production is the weakest of the four and lets it down but there's many good songs on this disc)

Yeah, I agree with your comments on all of them... bottom line, REALLY good stuff so far by Eonian! :drink:

I think I've changed my mind again and have moved Charlemagne just ahead of High Noon. :headbanger:

And I must say, Charlemagne is growing on me a little. The vocals aren't the best but I'm starting to dig this. :banger:

    • "Local News" doesn't even exist anymore.Right out of the gate they slam you with the Covid numbers...the body count...a clusterf__k of  negativity..maybe a little time for weather and sports and then newscast DONE! On radio - same thing  every half hour: rinse-wash-repeat.National / global depression,drug use,suicide rates still climbing....
    • As if we need something else to worry about but with overpopulation and a rapidly changing world due to climate issues..... In 2009, a patient in Japan developed a new fungal infection on their ear. The highly transmissible Candida auris fungus had been previously unknown to science (and resistant to the drugs available to treat it), but within a few years, cases started emerging in Venezuela, Iran, Russia, and South Africa. Scientists assumed that the spread was due to human travel, but when they sequenced the cases, they were surprised to find that these strains weren't closely related at all. Instead, scientists were seeing multiple, independent infections of an unknown fungal disease, emerging around the world, all at the same time. About a third of people infected with Candida auris die from the infection within 30 days, and there have now been thousands of cases in 47 countries. Some scientists think this sudden boom in global cases is a harbinger of things to come.
    • Agreed. I subbed to Russell Brand starting about 2 months ago. Yes, he's on the Left, but VERY even-handed IMO.
    • It's so hard to find unbiased info on anything these days...I just wish this virus wasn't being politicized...trust the science...once the science figures out wtf is going on which it hasn't yet....
    • Did you hear the fabled "roadmap to reopening the borders" has now been halted/delayed due the new (horrified screaming) variants? It's so predictable and the media machine are backing the states the whole way. More people at home, more people watching TV, more people buying shit from billionaires, more money for advertising, more wages for journalists , more votes for the government, more laws to control the populace. Win win win for elites.
    • This is currently the best independent media commentator on the internet. He comes from the Left, but old-school classical liberal and not the new devisive identity politics. Here he is discussing the shit going down in Australia.  
    • Gotta love the irresponsible national / global media."The new normal" for these idiots is the endless,fear mongering ritual abuse of the populace where any news on the "virus".."variants"..etc brings another flogging with the covid stick.Anyone who dares to question the over-reaching actions by government,"the science" or the asinine-repetitive-exploitive newsroom press propaganda are labeled a "conspiracy theorist"..or misinformation spreader...we've seen it all before -  try it on someone else.
    • Erik sounds good but song does little for me.  Really don't like the chorus...if you can even call that a chorus.
    • Got my refund today, fucking stupid, I was looking forward to this, oh well Loudness in March, havent seen them since 82, I was 5, my very first concert, super stoked for that.
